Oyintiloye, who described Nigerian youths as resourceful and dynamic, said they(youths) were the set of leaders the nation was waiting for to take the nation to a greater height.
” Nigerian youths must realise who they are, what they can see and must be learn to be civil and cultured.
” Nigerian youths must be ready to emulate Late Chief Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikwe, Alvan Nkoku and others , who in their prime age fought for the nation Independence.
” There are also other good examples of people all over the world , who at their youthful age involved themselves in the politics of their countries.
” The current Prime Minister of Canada Justin Pierre James Trudeau is just 46 years of age .
